About The Advocacy Project
We help the most marginalised and vulnerable people in London make effective choices about what happens in their lives. We also support them to speak up and help improve important services we all need. We want to make sure people across all age and care groups – including learning disability and mental health – can:
- voice their concerns
- understand their rights
- make effective choices about what happens in their lives
We do this through advocacy services which support people individually, and user involvement projects that help organisations improve the services they offer.
We’re really excited to be working with Hackney Council to offer advocacy in the local community and we’re recruiting to key positions.
About the role
This role will provide independent advocacy for adults eligible for advocacy under the Mental Health Act, including those in a forensic environment. You’ll also raise awareness of independent advocacy, including for people from minority ethnic communities. You’ll work as part of a team of independent advocates, reporting to the senior advocate.
How to apply
Upload your CV and a supporting statement explaining why you think you’re the person we’re looking for and how your experience meets the person specification.
